Arne Duncan, Next Governor of Illinois?
Arne Duncan and his family have been residing in Virginia since just after Duncan’s appointment as US secretary of education in December 2008.
In July 2015, Duncan’s wife and children moved back to Chicago, and Duncan was was expected to commute to DC, as Washington Post education writer Valerie Strauss reports:
Dorie Nolt, Duncan’s press secretary, said in an e-mail:After more than six years living just outside Washington, D.C., Secretary Duncan’s family moved back to Chicago recently. His wife, Karen, is ready to resume her full-time career in education and will work at her former employer, the University of Chicago Laboratory School, where their children will attend school. Secretary Duncan will continue to work and maintain a residence in D.C. but commute to spend weekends with his family, as many cabinet Secretaries have done. Secretary Duncan remains committed to his work in the Cabinet and will continue to serve at the pleasure of the President.
As it turns out, Duncan will be returning to Chicago earlier than originally expected; as the Associated Press reported on October 02, 2015, Duncan resigned in order to live with his family, implying that the Chicago-DC commute proved to be too much on his family life.
Indeed, there is another issue worthy of consideration, and that is the importance to Arne Duncan, Next Governor of Illinois? | deutsch29:
